    Although that particular page doesn't give you the breakdown of carbs of which are sugars, if you draw your eyes down to the ingredients list you will quickly find your answer:

    "Carb Blend (Maltodextrin, Fructose, Waxy Maize Starch Fractionated, Inulin)"


    So yes, mainly sugar (or fast acting carbs at least) - although I have no idea what 'Inulin' is.

    IIRC critical mass is the new name for mammoth 2500 and yes its very high in sugar

    Would be better with something line Boditronics mass attack, or make your own wiith some oats, milk, bannas and protein powder blended together

    Very good to gain weight with..

    Notice I said weight not quality weight.

    Ideally look for a gainer with a low GI carb source.

    There are better options out there for me - given the competition in the weight gainers market you can usually pick a gainer based on low GI carbs which has little sugar content around the same price anyway.

    High protein levels will inprove your own body's glycemic control. As a post workout you need a mix of simple and complex carbs to gain weight. If you look at the ingredients there aren't any refined sugars (sucrose) in there. We all know that some manufactrers use similar ingredients and don't declare the sugars as they should.
    I've used the Critical Mass, Mutant Mass, Serious Mass before and really rated them. All contain similar ingredients.
    At the end of the day if you want a shake that is bespoke gainer then it isn't hard to mix protein with oats and some udo's.
    As a convenient powder the Critical Mass was great. I would defo put it alongside Optimum Serious Mass. I am not a big fan of any of the boditronics stuff but they get a lot of support on here from people

    BTW... Inulin is a carb that is classed as a fibre.
